Kent Exterior Remodel

The owners of this Kent, Washington log home were experiencing problems associated with high weather exposure due primarily to inadequate roof overhangs.   The width of the balcony was reduced to provide greater protection from the elements.  A sloped, waterproof membrane was applied, directing water to a full length gutter for removal.  The log railings were replaced with a painted metal version to minimize long-term maintenance.

Cedar Ponds Solarium

This solarium represents an addition to a cabin previously built by Creasey Log Homes.  It's purpose is to provide additional space as well as collect heat to be passively distributed to the cabin to regulate heat in cooler months.  One of the features making it unique is the artistic representation of animal prints in the stone floor paying homage to local wildlife.  LED dot lights embedded in the floor provide a soft upcast highlighting the natural wood, as well.  The project extended to the exterior with stone hardscaping and steps down to additional planned social spaces.
